    Wonderful Car — We gave this car, to my uncle in Lousiville (great colour-red for the cardinals) after we had it only 2 years in Florida. It was a fabulous car. Drove great, great head room, speedy engine, rolls royce look. Highlyyyyy recommended!!!

    Pros: Great look, fast car overall, good feel, nice drive.

    Cons: Very luxurious, but i dunno actually

    A Classic Luxury Car. — Understated English luxury. Everyman's Rolls Royce. Handles like a sports car and has the size of a large limo. With navigation, blue tooth telephone and 140 watt Alpine 6 cd changer audio it is very comfortable. Docile but outrageous when you want it to be.

    Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

    Pros: Beautiful luxury car.  Handles like a dream with plenty of power.

    Cons: Its so perfect I'm afraid to take in the city or park it next to another car!

    Truly The Most Elegant Piece Of Garbage Ever Produced In Automotive History! — Gorgeous is worth it! Or so the Jaguar marketers would have you believe. I admit, I bought into the mantra. In the end, a car that runs and doesn't break down every other day is worth it! While she always started and ran everything broke on Jaglicious despite fastidious care and babying. From the fuel pump being replaced twice in 12k miles to the rear view mirror falling off into a passengers lap to the chrome door trim falling off during a home hand washing. I was in a loaner Enterprise Ford Focus probably half the time which I came to admire for its reliability and simpleton demeanor. Depreciation is a big factor keeping in mind original sticker in the sixties down to the low thirties in a few years and then falling into the teens a few years later. Admire her beauty from afar but please - yes please do not fall for the Marketeers!

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Looks that had handicapped seniors in cross walks stopping and waving you to move in front of them. A ride unsurpassed by any other vehicle - akin to floating on a magic carpet. The most amazing wood of any vehicle except perhaps a Bentley. Plenty of room for four in supreme comfort.

    Cons: Purchased Jaguar Select pre-owned and certified from Crown in St Petersburg. $16,000 worth of warranty work in 18 months. Keep in mind she was certified and received with only 28k miles on the clock. I would rate the seat comfort at a -1 since they had to be the hardest most uncomfortable automotive seats that I ever encountered.
